  1. Here's a spreadsheet I put together a few months ago. Prices should be right on or close. Carnival Vista Cheers Evaluator 2018-08-02.xls
  2. 27/38 of my cruises have been on NCL, 10 of those in suites (everything ranging from front & aft to 1- and 2-bedroom haven to Owner's Suite to Garden Villa). Haven't been on MSC yet, but one of the things pulling me this direction is the fact that the food in the YC seems so much more varied and plentiful. The room itself seems somewhat comparable to a standard NCL suite. Aside from our cruises in the Garden Villas, the butler service on NCL has been meh. That's another big selling point for YC.
  3. Message from Bong last week. He is on vacation, and will return to the Bliss. Didn't say when, but I'm thinking he'll likely be there in December.
  4. I swear... People being mean to Clarence or Bong is akin to kicking a puppy. What sort of person would do that?!?
  5. I was on a cruise with friends when he proposed to her. They had a private dinner at the steak house. He got the maitre'd in on it, as well as the waiters. After dinner, the waiter came over with a covered platter, explaining that he had a special dessert. When he lifted the cover there was a single red rose and an engagement ring displayed in its box. My friend got on his knee and proposed. It was a private thing in a public place. (She said yes.) Very sweet.
  6. Great pics! Thanks for sharing.
  7. The only time I gave gifts was when I took a cruise on which I knew there would be a couple of lady crewmember friends from previous cruises. I gave each a pair of soft, fuzzy aloe socks for kicking back at the end of a long day on their feet. They were delighted. I made it clear that if they wanted to toss them at the end of their contract my feelings wouldn't be hurt. Otherwise... Cash is king.
  8. Thanks for being "that guy"! Don't be sorry, just the sort of feedback I need. **NEW** CARNIVAL CHEERS EVALUATOR SPREADSHEET ATTACHED Latest iteration corrects error khidhala pointed out. I've also changed the default package price back to pre-cruise, without 15% gratuity included. This is a better comparison. Please always look for the latest version of the spreadsheet. Once we get all the kinks worked out I'll post a new thread. Carnival Vista Cheers Evaluator 2018-08-02.xls
  9. CHEERS EVALUATOR SPREADSHEET UPDATE 2018-08-01 Thanks to eagle-eyed user crooooze, here's the latest update with a few corrected formulae. Carnival Vista Cheers Evaluator 2018-08-01.xls
  10. The Queen Nerd thanks you! :') I'll make the corrections crooooze noted and post an update tomorrow. Thanks for the feedback! Just what I was looking for. Murph1977, no, the drink prices do not contain the 15% gratuity. The package price pre-loaded does, but you cam change that.
  11. LATEST UPDATE (2018-07-29) ATTACHED. THANK YOU, SKYPIGLET!!! The Standard Bar Menu could really use some work. Anyone? Also, it doesn't look to me like the Library Bar really has anything besides the enomatic wine dispensers. Anyone? Anyone have an updated list of wines by the glass? Carnival Vista Cheers Evaluator 2018-07-29.xls
  12. THANK YOU, SkyPiglet! I'll make the updates and post later.
  13. Carol, I'm so glad you saw this post! We are on the Vista Dec. 9th. Any chance you're on the same sailing?
